Autograph Letter, Thomas Hutchinson to William Michael Rossetti
Folded octavo sheet. 3 pages. "Pegswood, Morpeth, Northumberland. 4/5/05." A rather guileless but over-indulgent letter by an admirer of Rossetti, and asking a very special, if not extremely unusual favor: "I should like to to insert a few line your handwriting in my copy of your book; and, also, if you indulge in the luxury of one, an example of your bookplate. Need I say more?" A chatty letter introducing his book ("Little Library of a Country Bookworm"), how it got sold off by Sotheby's, why he sold the copies ("to send my son to college"), etc. One wonders how the sale of this virtually unrecorded book by a virtually unrecorded author was able to fund a college education, but it makes for good literary drama in the form of a doting ALS. Near fine.
